Magic Kingdom Vice President Dan Cockerell to retire

Apr 25, 2018 in "The Walt Disney Company"

According to sources within the company, 49 year old Magic Kingdom Vice President Dan Cockerell will retire next month.

Dan became the Magic Kingdom Vice President in 2015 during a reshuffle which saw long-time Magic Kingdom VP Phil Holmes move to the Studios VP role in a swap. Prior to that, he was the Vice President of Epcot during his 26 year Disney career.

Apparently Dan will start a speaking and consulting company, with plans to travel.

No word yet on a replacement, and Dan's final day will be May 11 2018.
